Mega Cab Swap

Hello,
I recently rolled my 2011 ram mega cab 6.7 laramie and have since purchased a new cab to swap it since my current one is not repairable. I am looking for anyone who has done this on this year of truck, or has any tips on how to go about this on these trucks. I have done this on older trucks but never something this new. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys

If Im reading this right you already have a mega cab. So the sway should be easy just time consuming transferring everything over.

if the other cab is complete, it's not to bad, unplug and replug in electrical, few brake lines. etc.. if it's mega to mega. i'd think it's not to bad. heck ford lifts the cab just to change the oil (not really) but it's not that hard of a job with the right tools.
